Willy Paul has been advertising his new song featuring Harmonize just after Diamond Platimumz launched his album in Kenya a few weeks ago saying he is yet to sign a few Kenyan artistes and even open up a recording label.
Well, Willy Paul just posted a picture on his social media and with the caption :
Just joined the club
From the comments, his fans are wondering what club he means he has joined the secular world or does it mean he has finally joined the Wasafi team? I don’t know about you but if so this is about to set the world on fire with a lot of backlash.
Maina Kageni is very selective when it comes to music and if you listen to his breakfast show frequently, you know he’s a big supporter of East African music and a little of Western songs.
The celebrated radio personality is a lover of local music, from gospel to secular songs, but his preference is gospel tracks.
When it comes to Bongo music, Maina Kageni is a fan of artistes like Diamond Platnumz, Christina Shusho, Alikiba and Harmonize. Uganda’s music legend Jose Chameleone who is best known for songs like; Wale Wale and Badilisha is another one of his favorites.
When it comes to Kenyan music, Maina Kageni has his favorites like; Willy Paul, Sanaipei Tande, Daddy Owen, and Mercy Masika. But now, the renowned radio host has revealed his undying support for one, Bahati.
Kenyan gospel singer Bahati real name Kevin Kioko is one of the youngest singers in Kenya and over the years, he’s proved to be among the best in the local music scene. He also happens to be Willy Paul’s nemesis for the longest time.
Bahati recently revealed a new song with Wasafi signed-singer Rayvanny, known for his collaboration with Diamond Platnumz dubbed Salome, which is a massive hit in Africa.
The new song goes by the name, Nikumbushe, which is a reminder of their background before all the fame and money. It basically tells people to remain humble even after the fame, and not looking down on other people.
Maina Kageni revealed that he’s a huge fan of Bahati and his music, and though he took a long time to introduce his fans to the new collaboration, he confessed that he loved the song immediately he heard it.
The radio presenter also congratulated Bahati for his efforts to work with artistes from other countries, revealing that the song is already has 1.2 Million views on YouTube. Listen to the audio below.
Controversial gospel artiste Willy Paul is one of the most loved and celebrated young singers in Kenya and though he’s full of scandals, he still has a massive following of fans who adore his songs.
The Tam Tam hitmaker recently dropped a new wedding song I Do with Jamaican songstress Alaine, that led to alot of criticism because of the fact that she is a secular singer, but that doesn’t mean that they didn’t watch the music video or listen to the song.
As we speak the song is currently at 1.2 Million views on YouTube and so far, this is the biggest collaboration in 2017, making it his first official song to get at a million views in less than a month.
Willy Paul real name, Wilson Abubakar Radido recently revealed that he had signed a contract with renowned Bongo artiste Diamond Platnumz, though it wasn’t clear if he had signed to his record label, WCB.
Later on, it was revealed that he was going to be part of Diamond’s online music distribution platform, wasafi.com, where his songs will be posted for download, and trust me, this is a big move for Willy Paul.
However, this did not go well with his fans, who felt that it was a big mistake to sign a deal with a secular record label, telling him that he had ‘killed his own gospel career’.
Willy Paul, on the other hand, seems to be very happy and content with the move and feels no remorse whatsoever, more so, after Diamond Platnumz endorsed his music to his 3.4 Million followers.
Diamond Platnumz put up a photo of Willy Paul’s song with Alaine, telling his fans to go to the music site and download it with this caption: “AFRICA!!!! Now you can get I DO by @willy.paul.msafi & @alainesinga and all @willy.paul.msafi Hits on @wasafidotcom”
Well, Willy Paul couldn’t help but repost it with this simple caption: “Diamond just said it guys… get the song now!!” Let’s see how this impacts his musical career and if it puts him on a new pedestal.
